[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
here we are on the rim of the Fish river canyon into the Canyon Nature Park - west entrance.
This tree is the kokerboom (alohe dicotoma), it lives in the rocky area of southern Namibia.
It's also known as "quivertree" because the bushmen used the branches to make the quiver for their arrows.

Ciao Aldo!
Molto bella questa fotografia. Forse, fossi stato li, avrei provato a fare un'altra foto inserendo nell'inquadratura anche tutta l'ombra dell'albero per vedere che effetto avrebbe fatto... o forse mi sarebbe venuto in mente solo riguardando la foto a casa!!!
Comunque molto bella! Bravo!
Enrico.
